    moving to committee is much like getting as a gift a shirt that you wouldn't wear to a dog fight:
    you move it to the back of the closet, you don't have to wear it [this will never be acted on]
    you can show it to gift-giver [the electorate,HEY LOOK WHAT I DID]
    after a decent interval you can throw it out [we are less than a year from an election that will terminate chaneys employment makeing all things moot]

    Debate on Cheney Impeachment Averted

    "House Democrats on Tuesday narrowly managed to avert a bruising debate on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney after Republicans, in a surprise maneuver, voted in favor of taking up the measure."

    "Midway through the vote, with instructions from the GOP leadership, Republicans one by one changed their votes from yes — to kill the resolution — to no, trying to force the chamber into a debate and an up-or-down vote on the proposal.

    At one point there were 290 votes to table. After the turnaround, the final vote was 251-162 against tabling, with 165 Republicans voting against it."


    This is hilarious!!!!! Republicans switched votes mid-vote to give the Democrats their impeachment hearing to show how silly it really is.! The result: the Dem leadership got scared for a moment. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    "We're going to help them out, to explain themselves," said Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas. "We're going to give them their day in court."

    Bluff - called.

    The time for all this has passed.

    There are only fourteen months, twelve days, three hours, and approximately seven minutes remaining in Bush/Cheney's final term (but who's counting, right?). It'll all be over soon enough........nobody on the public payroll should be wasting their time and ours trying to put an impeachment together this late in the game.

    But, it would be so much fun to watch Congressional Democrats self-destruct even MORE so than they are doing now. . . Oh Please do! Let's have an impeachment.

    I think it would be good for the country to hear members of the administration on the record and under oath.

    Yes, hilarious.:spin:

    Now, lets get back to work Congress! . .. . . and let us start with reducing spending, reducing taxes, and protecting our country and its interests.

    Get out of my back pocket, my house, my car, my doctor's office, my kids' education, my husband's job, the woods . . . . I could go on.

    there is an interesting article in my paper this morning . .. i'll try to link it.

    http://www.redding.com/news/2007/nov...-constitution/

    . . . . . ."
    levinson's argument is historically rich and theoretically sophisticated, but here are a few of his key points in highly simplified form.
    first, the structure of the national legislature is wildly undemocratic. what exactly is the justification for, in this the year of our lord 2007, giving a senator from wyoming approximately 70 times more power per voter represented than one from california?
    in an era in which almost all of the most important political decisions are made at the national rather than the state level, the structure of the senate essentially gives senators from small states a license to steal federal tax dollars for the benefit of their sparsely populated fiefdoms.
    and, as levinson the political scientist demonstrates, they are exceptionally good at doing so. hence we get $50 million bridges to nowhere, economically and environmentally insane subsidies for various farming and ranching interests, and so on."

    Sorry. Why NOT discuss this on the record?
    On CSPAN?

    This is neither Nancy Pelosis nor Mr. Cheney's government.
    Why not try to get the truth on the record?

    Kucinich still trying to impeach Cheney (Is there a psychiatrist in the house?)
    Could there possibly be anything more absurd than the presidential candidacy of congressional munchkin, Dennis Kucinich? Actually, yes, there is. It is his tireless-and brainless-campaign to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney (also known as Darth Vader in paranoid liberal circles).

    And what exactly are the charges with which Kukucinich hopes to nail the malevolent vice president? Well, according to a congressional resolution offered up on Nov. 6, he accused Cheney of being "in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of vice president" and said that Cheney had "purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States by fabricating a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction to justify the use of the U.S. Armed Forces against the nation of Iraq in a manner damaging to our national security interests."

    Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo. Where are the men in the white suits with the butterfly nets when you need them?...
